and i'm in downtown syracuse. plows have come through this area and cars have been coming down through this area. you can see some slush on the roadway, and what you're also seeing is accumulation from some previous storms, and the last four days, syracuse has gotten 13 inches of snow, and this snowstorm is expected to leave about a foot of snow, so this is what you're seeing on the ground here. officials say that syracuse is actually used to getting a lot of snow. there are a lot of snow resorts in the area as well, so they actually welcome this type of weather, but for cleaning the streets, that's a different story because it's a lot of snow in a short amount of time. one thing that is helping them is the fact that this is a holiday week, so this is a nightmare for air travelers, and on the streets as well, but the fact is there's no schools open this week and a lot of offices are naturally closed, so that's certainly aleve nates the problem on the streets, ali. >> ines, we'll stay with you, ines ferre in syracuse.
